Date Function:

All of our watches are made from 316L surgical-grade stainless steel. This typically measures 200HV on the Vickers hardness scale; however, after our signature hardening treatment is applied, we are able to achieve a hardness rating of almost 1200HV. With this additional protection against the typical scratches and swirls that otherwise occur all too often during the rigors of everyday life, you can wear our watches without worry, using them like the robust tools they’re intended to be.

Cut from synthetic sapphire and measuring 9/10 on the Mohs hardness scale, the Freediver’s crystal is virtually impervious to scratches. Colloquially referred to as a “box style” crystal, its design is reminiscent of the plexiglass crystals that graced watches from a bygone era. This particular sapphire crystal also boasts a thick layer of clear anti-reflective coating on the underside — eliminating glare for easy reading even under direct sunlight.

The Freediver's dial is enhanced with polished stainless steel indices that have been individually applied by hand with great skill and care. Filled with Swiss Made BGW9 Super-LumiNova, the applied markers provide an opulent contrast against the dial's lacquered finish.

The diamond-cut hands are milled from a solid block of brass and then meticulously polished before being filled with the same Swiss Made BGW9 luminescent material used in the bezel and the dial's applied indices.

Constructed from hardened 316L surgical-grade stainless steel, the Freediver’s 200-meter water-resistant case was engineered to thrive in every element. Serving as a testament to our commitment to the smallest of details, you’ll enjoy observing the way light dances around the polished chamfers that highlight the transitions in finishes. The mirror polished mid-case is ever so slightly convex in form, lending the Freediver yet another point of enhanced visual interest.

The 120 click unidirectional coin-edged bezel exhibits a polished ceramic insert with Swiss Made BGW9 Super-LumiNova filled minute and hash markers. The ceramic bezel's unparalleled hardness ensures that the Freediver's rotating bezel will remain scratch-free and looking new through every adventure. The bezel functions as a minute timer — just rotate it counterclockwise until the circular marker is aligned with the minute hand. As the minute hand advances, the circular pip remains in the same position and a quick glance at the bezel reveals how many minutes have elapsed since the setting of the timer.

The coin-edged crown with embossed logo screws down snugly into the side of the Freediver's hermetic case, while a carefully engineered triple gasket system helps to uphold the integrity of the 200-meter depth rating.

Within the hermetically sealed, 20 ATM-rated case beats the workhorse that powers the Freediver. The no-date variants make use of the Japanese Made Miyota 9039 movement, while those with a date complication at the 6 hour position utilize the 9019. A fully mechanical high-beat movement automatically wound by the movement of the wearer, the 9 series caliber oscillates at 28,800 beats per hour and will keep on ticking for decades. A 24 jeweled, hand-windable movement with hacking, the 9 series was introduced by the Japanese firm as an alternative to the Swiss Made ETA-2824. One could argue that the 9 series calibers are actually technologically superior to their Swiss counterparts thanks to their 42 hour power reserve and slimmer profile.

All of our movements are regulated in four positions for enhanced timekeeping tolerances. This process involves manually adjusting the length of the mechanical movement’s hairspring, fine-tuning it to keep even better time than what their manufacturer advertises. After regulation in four positions, the 9 series will typically run between -10 to +20 seconds a day.

Forged from 316L stainless steel and tapering from 20mm to 16mm, the bracelet’s solid and fully articulating links echo designs from the Swiss bracelet purveyor Gay Frères. Made with a rigorous lifestyle in mind, the robust bracelet has undergone the same proprietary hardening process as the case. Precisely machined from stainless steel, the buckle exhibits polished chamfers on either side. The inside of the clasp is painstakingly hand polished with a perlage finish — because even the smallest of details matter. The buckle’s five micro-adjustments and the removable link’s large flat head screws allow the bracelet to be sized to your exact liking with ease.

Effortlessly adjust the size of your bracelet and get the perfect fit at all times thanks to our tool-less micro-adjustable buckle. With 5 different positions spaced 1.5mm apart, you can make your bracelet incrementally smaller or larger with the push of a button. No screwdrivers. No screws. No frustration. Oh, and it includes two additional half-links to ensure a comfortable fit for every wrist!

Our genuine leather travel case stays true to the utilitarian nature of the TRASKA brand. We value form; but not at the expense of function. Even when traveling light is a necessity, this leather pouch is small enough to go with you and ensure the safety of your timepiece. This isn’t packaging that will gather dust in the closet — it’s an elegant yet practical accessory you’ll want to travel with wherever you go.
